Rated 1 out of 5 Terrible
I'm very confused by those that gave this four or five stars as I bought this today based on good reviews and will return it tomorrow! I have been rebuilding a wall in my garden and a few other projects so have been moving several tonnes of various aggregates from the bottom of my drive to the top of my garden. My old barrow finally died yesterday midway though moving a tonne of ballast, the top detaching from the base. A few cable ties kept it going for the rest of the move, but a new barrow was required pronto!
I picked this up today and it was easy to build and straight forward. That's the only positive thing I have to say about it. For Â£40 I thought it would be decent... How wrong I was.
I made a concrete mix with my cement mixer, my usual mix of 15 shovels ballast, 3 cement, water... Poured into new barrow and attempted to wheel it off... The whole thing FLEXED out of shape and spilled concrete. It simply cannot deal with being full of anything! I filled it with stone and once again it bent out of shape when I moved it. I tried a smaller mix, with the same result.
The box says "Heavy Duty Builders Wheelbarrow". There is nothing heavy duty about this, and I can't see any builder tolerating this rubbish.
I must have a different wheelbarrow to the other reviewers as this one is just TERRIBLE! I'm actually quite angry about it as it has ruined my days work and cost time and material spillage.
I will be taking it back tomorrow or Monday to discuss this poor excuse for a wheelbarrow with the Bath branch manager.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Baas13 Seems Fair..
Havent used the item yet..since its still a tat too early to give a full product review.
One thing worth noting is that the holes on the w.barrow doesn't fully lign up like it should..and I had to hammer the supporting brackets at the front a bit (the top bit was bend too far over) to make them fit between the frame and bucket..

Rated 4 out of 5 Good value and does the job.
Straightforward to put together. Lightweight, but strong. Used mainly for transporting large quantities of gravel and for garden maintenance work. Coped very well with all jobs. Quite maneuverable along narrow paths. Easily cleaned up and looking good as new. Reasonably priced for the quality, so I'm pleased with my purchase.
